Fayette Academy Statement of Faith

The beliefs set forth in the Nicene Creed are foundational to Fayette Academy and uphold the school’s mission and vision. They are the key elements of Christianity that will be unapologetically taught in various ways through all grade levels.

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,

begotten of His Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God,
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made;
who for us and for our salvation came down from Heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,
and was made man;
and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried;
and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures,
and ascended into Heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
And he shall come again, with glory,
to judge both the living and the dead;
whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,

The Lord and giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;
who spoke by the prophets;
and we believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church;
we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;
and we look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

Learner-Centered Education

Fayette Academy is a  PK3 -12 independent school located in the heart of Fayette County, Tennessee. Fayette Academy focuses on the whole child, providing a nurturing environment for children to learn and to grow. Families who select The Academy  experience a place for students to express themselves and to be a part of a community. In a Christ-centered atmosphere, we provide a superior balance of academic rigor,  artistic and athletic achievement, and spiritual growth.


In a small Fayette County community, parents gathered to dream of a school that would provide excellence in education with a focus upon Christian values and from that meeting The Academy was established. After much dedication and sacrifice, Fayette Academy opened its doors in the fall of 1965 with one hundred students in grades 1-8. The school site was purchased in 1966, and on January 1, 1967, students in grades 1-12 were moved from houses in Somerville to the new building where the campus stands today. Fayette Academy continues to evolve and to prepare students as lifelong learners and productive citizens.
